Everything you need to know about anti-ageing lip creams

Has your trusty lipstick – you know, that cherished shade you always reach for when you need a confidence boost – lost its impact? Perhaps your lips are looking less defined, or persistent dryness is preventing flawless application. Before you resort to plumping glosses or clever tricks with lip liner, we recommend you consider a more advanced skincare solution. 

Our Lip Contour Cream offers a targeted approach to address signs of ageing around your lips and mouth. Formulated with potent peptides and age-defying stem cells, it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and promotes firmer, more supple skin that appears younger. Sound enticing?

Why should you use lip cream?

It is no coincidence that targeted, personalised skincare is becoming more and more popular. As our knowledge about skin develops, it is clear to see that different areas of our face require distinct care. For example, the deeper layers of our skin need different actives to our skin barrier. Similarly, our lip and mouth area can benefit more from a tailored formula than from a regular moisturiser. 

Faeye McAuley, Carol Joy London’s Head of Spa, adds: “The mouth area tends to be one of the first places on your face to develop wrinkles. This is partly due to how expressive the area is and the thinness of the skin, which already has less collagen compared to other areas of the face. Environmental and lifestyle factors (like smoking and sun exposure) can also exacerbate lines around the lips and mouth.”

Using a targeted skincare solution for your lips, like our Lip Contour Cream, can help keep these premature signs of ageing at bay and promote a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Get to know the formula

Our Lip Contour Cream has been formulated with care and precision to ensure targeted delivery of the most advanced anti-ageing actives. 

It is powered by Nicotiana Benthamiana Hexapeptide-40 sh-Polypeptide-47 – a sustainable, plant-derived peptide that is identical to Type I collagen. This clever active penetrates deep into the epidermis where it triggers collagen synthesis to help firm, plump and rejuvenate the skin around your lips and mouth. The result? A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in skin suppleness and texture. 

The innovative formula also boasts a high concentration of White Rose Stem Cells which deliver superior antioxidant action to help defend against damage caused by environmental stressors. This, in turn, protects elastin and collagen production, providing a stronger structure for firmer, more lifted skin. 

To target dryness and dehydration, the Lip Contour Cream has been made with an ultra-nourishing base of Mango Butter with added Hyaluronic Acid. This quenching combination helps to lock in moisture while smoothing and soothing the skin around your lips.

How to apply Lip Contour Cream for the best results

Like with all skincare, consistency is key when it comes to seeing the benefits. The Lip Contour Cream should be applied morning and evening everyday to ensure best possible results.

The great thing about this formula is that a little goes a long way. You only need a tiny amount (about the size of a grain of rice) for each use. Simply dot the product around your mouth – this ensures an even application – then gently tap the product into your skin using your ring finger until it is fully absorbed. You can also apply the product using short upward strokes. Use a light, gentle touch to avoid tugging at your skin.

Although the Lip Contour Cream combats the damage caused by some environmental aggressors, we recommend layering a broad spectrum SPF on top. This ensures your skin is protected against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB radiation.

What should you expect after using the Lip Contour Cream regularly?

The lip contour cream has been formulated to deliver visible results in as little as seven days.* However, the benefits will become more enhanced with regular use over a longer period of time. After 4-6 weeks, you can expect to see:

  • Less visible fine lines and wrinkles: The plumping and collagen-boosting effects of the cream will help diminish the appearance of fine lines around your lips.
  • Increased hydration: Thanks to its Hyaluronic Acid content and Mango Butter base, the skin around your lips will feel softer, smoother, and be less prone to dryness.
  • Enhanced volume: The cream can help restore the structure and firmness of skin around your lips, creating a fuller, more lifted appearance. 

*Based on the results of a clinical trial on 20 women aged 35-65 showing mild to moderate wrinkles and fine lines in the lip contour area.

Can everyone benefit from using lip cream?

Absolutely. Our Lip Contour Cream is suitable for all skin types and ideal for anyone looking to achieve a smoother, plumper, and more youthful-looking lip and mouth area. Whether you are starting to see the first signs of ageing or simply want to maintain healthy, hydrated skin around your lips, this targeted cream is the perfect way to elevate your regular skincare ritual. 

How do lip creams compare to other anti-aging treatments?

Of course, there are other ways to target signs of ageing around the lips – most notably, injectable Hyaluronic Acid fillers. Although this is a fantastic solution for some, our Lip Contour Cream provides a non-invasive, more affordable alternative for people who want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around without being poked or prodded. Lip creams are also a more gentle form of anti-ageing treatment. They are generally suitable for all skin types and can easily be incorporated into your daily routine.
